The Library of Congress announced the names of 25 films Wednesday that are to be enshrined in its National Film Registry. Of those 25, 5-1/2 were based on books or stories. The half? Read on. The 1983 film "A Christmas Story" -- with Ralphie, a frozen tongue and the fra- gee -lay leg lamp -- was based on the short story collection "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash" by Jean Shepherd, first published in 1966. Shepherd was a humorist who worked in radio, television, print and film -- he co-wrote the screenplay of "A Christmas Story" and is the movie's voiceover narrator.
